Excellent , and really fun read - another page-turner. A little bit reminiscent of Neal Stephenson's not-quite-cyberpunk, mixed with a little high-energy pulp, combined with a surprising bit of commentary on our own capacity for growth.
The gimmicks and gadgets, the atmosphere, the flawed but likable hero, the myriad disparate bits of plot that all weave together in the end... well worth the read.
